Research interests of Tatiana Abakumova linked with targeted delivery of therapeutic and diagnostic agents to the brain (glioma, multiple sclerosis), synthesis of nanocontainers (micelles, nanogels, liposomes) and Gd-contrast agents. In January 2016 she got a Ph.D. in biochemistry with thesis «Targeted systems for MRI visualization of brain pathologies».
Tatiana Abakumova has a number of awards for her oral and poster presentations on the international conferences, including NANO2014 award for the best poster presentation among young scientists. She got scholarships from the Government of Russian Federation, funds and grants from different funds to support own research. She published 13 papers and 30 conference abstracts.
